Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Convertible bed, Sleeps 12

Get away from it all on Henry's Island offering alluring privacy and breathtaking views on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy the 5 acre Bay-front home whose private sandy beach includes unique Northern Neck sand dunes. Swim, crab, fish or use provided canoe, kayak, or paddle board to explore the water. Relax on lounge chairs with a frosty drink (margarita machine included). Take in the Bay breeze while reading a book or sleeping on the beach. The open floor plan and 9 ft. ceilings provide a spectacular view to watch bald eagles, osprey and heron without leaving the beautifully furnished house. Dine inside overlooking the Bay or eat outside on the patio set after using the gas grill. Three king bedrooms (including two master suites), a bunk room and a separate play room make it comfortable and fun for adults and kids alike.

Something for Everyone: Tour one of historic Northern Neck's 19 museums, golf several excellent courses just minutes away including the award-winning King Carter Club (Golf Digest's 2006 best affordable public course in America) or sip Virginia's finest wines on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail. Sail, shop or dine in award-winning restaurants nearby. An easy drive to historic Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA.

About Diane Boyle

We love the relaxed atmosphere of being right on the Chesapeake Bay where going to beach doesn't require leaving the property.

Diane Boyle purchased this house in 2009

Why Diane Boyle chose Virginia

Just a short distance from DC, this private location provides a soft sandy beach to relax. However relaxing doesn't mean boring. The historic Northern Neck of Virginia has award winning golf, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, history (birthplace of three US presidents), art, antiques, and vineyards.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and endless Bay views makes it perfect for relaxing and playing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great views of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

The views were fantastic and the house was very roomy and clean. The weather was less than desirable but the house provided enough space to allow everyone to enjoy themselves regardless. Overall a success and we'd definitely return.

Beautiful home and beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful weather, beach and home!! Blessed with perfect 90 degree weather. Home had everything we needed to enjoy our time there. A little paint and new screens on the doors but not a deterrent from our stay just an observation.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We rely on our guests to point out needed improvements and attempt to have them addressed quickly. We'll get new screens on the doors. The cleaning crew doesn't always notice as our little visitors tend to poke their fingers or toys thru the screen leaving holes below eye level.

Beautiful property, we had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We went as a group of ten friends and had a lovely stay at Diane's house. It is a really pretty area to visit, we really enjoyed spending time outside in the adirondacks soaking in the sun. The house is wonderfully equipped from the kitchen, to the bedrooms, the outdoor space, most everything was thoughtfully provided. I recommend this place!

Wonderful Holiday Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

There were four adults and one child in our party, and the property provided a perfect base for visiting family over the Christmas holiday. The views of the Chesapeake Bay are spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked and allowed us to hold a small Christmas Eve gathering for family. Diane, the owner, was very responsive to any questions or issues. And lucky us…we saw a beautiful bald eagle in a nearby tree for over 20 minutes.

Total Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal setting to get away from it all for a few days. Property was well maintained - Enjoyed the private beach as advertised. Only a short drive to get excellent oysters, crab rolls and shrimp!
